DIY Essential Oil Wool Dryer Ball Blend

DIY Essential Oil Wool Dryer Ball Blend

Wool Dryer Balls are all the rage right now. Why? Because people are sick and tired of chemicals in every facet of their lives. People are looking for natural alternatives to not only help them be healthier but to also help the earth be healthier. Green cleaning is a better alternative to chemical cleaning.

How do wool dryer balls work?  Wool dryer balls bounce around in the dryer allowing hot air to circulate better which reduces drying time by up to 20%.  This saves time, energy and money.  Dryer balls also soften your laundry and reduce wrinkles and static.

So, I just had to try them and here is what I found.  My dryer time went from 60 minutes to 50 minutes, that is 10 minutes less with each dryer load.  I do about 6 loads of laundry per week, about 312 loads total per year, so that is 3120 minutes dryer time SAVED per year!!

What could make all natural dryer balls better...ESSENTIAL OILS of course!  Here is an amazing blend to add to your wool dryer balls, simple but yummy.

Wool Dryer Ball Blend Recipe (5 ml)

  • 40 drops lavender essential oil
  • 45 drops lemon essential oil
  • 5 ml recycled essential oil bottle (with reducer and cap)
